U.S customers won’t be able to deposit or exchange XRP on the platform after January 13, 2021, 10:00 a.m. ET, although, the withdrawals will remain unaffected at this period, the trade declared on Wednesday.


Binance US is the recent exchanging platform to suspend XRP trading in the U.S after the Securities & Exchange Commission sued Ripple earlier this month on claims that it is selling XRP as unregistered security for almost seven-year. Other trades that are going to suspend or delist XRP exchanging in the crypto space include Bitwise, Coinbase, Genesis Global Trading,, Jump Trading, OKCoin, OSL, Wirex, Swipe Wallet, Ziglu, Bittrex, Galaxy Digital, Crosstower, and Beaxy.


However, as the news made headlines, the price of XRP declined by 2.1% hitting a 24-hour low of $0.1999, though gradually recovering.


As per the SEC suit, which was recorded a week ago in the U.S. Region Court for the Southern District of New York, Ripple, Chairman Chris Larsen and CEO Brad Garlinghouse have sold some $1.3 billion in XRP since 2013. The SEC claims that Ripple didn’t enlist XRP as security or look for an exclusion for the token, of which it holds almost 50 billion bonds. 


As far as it matters for its, Ripple has called the claims doubtful and has vowed to document a reaction in court in the coming weeks. The San Francisco-based firm has over and again considered the SEC’s suit an assault on crypto in the U.S., with CEO Garlinghouse guaranteeing the office’s activities straightforwardly advantage China. 


The SEC and Ripple should likewise document a joint letter by Feb. 15 expressing whether the two players are eager to agree to have a magistrate judge direct procedure as opposed to a district judge.
